Guests have a choice of three different art activities in which to participate, each lasting approximately 45 minutes to an hour.

Angie King, MMofA Curator of Art Education, will teach how to throw a clay pot on the potter’s wheel. Pieces will be fired and can be picked up later at the museum. Cost for non-members is $20, FREE for members. Pre-registration is highly recommended as space is limited.

Matthew Thompson will teach a lesson from his upcoming Expanded Tools for Drawing class.  Participants will learn how a grid method can help them to enlarge their drawings into something truly magnificent. Cost for non-members is $5, FREE for members.
